Occupying about 90 sq km or 35 sq miles, near the town of Belogradchik, it is Bulgaria’s only landmark nominated for the global New Seven Wonders of Nature Campaign. The monumental red rocks, some them 200 m high, or 650 ft, in 1841 they inspired French Traveller Jerôme-Adolphe Blanqui to declare that the Pyrenees, the Alps and the Tyrolean mountains in Switzerland insipid in comparison.

It is almost impossible to imagine these unearthly formations being shaped only by the prosaic effect to wind, sun, ice and tectonic movements of the dried-up water basin 230 million years ago.

 

The imagination creates legends, though, and some of the peculiarly-shaped stone pillars boasts their own name and some even their own history. Among the best known heroes in the thick fairytale book of the Belogradchick Rocks are the Schoolgirl, the Dervish, the Bear, the Madonna, the Monks, the Horseman, Adam and Eve, the Mushrooms, the Wedding….

 

The first people to settle in the area, in the 3rd century AD, were not the sort to be easily scared. They were Romans and for them the rock formation was simply the ideal location to build an impenetrable fortress to guard one of the busiest roads linking the Danube and the Aegean. The Roman stronghold named Kaleto is still standing in the steepest part of a circle of Rocks here. Two more ramparts were added after the Romans left, the legacy of the Bulgarians and Ottomans, who occupied it in later centuries. Optional: On our way back - visit the Monastery of Cherepish

The place itself was astonishing!! Absolutely fantastic view on the landscape and the weather was good as it was pouring rain when we arrived to Sofia, but on the day of the tour the skies finally cleared, so we were lucky:) The guide was a very pleasant lady, spoke English very well unlike other guides we met in Bulgaria, so it was easy to communicate and get all the answers we wanted. The bus that took us to the place was clean, there was an AC but the driver switched it off as soon as we got inside and switched it on back when we went to see the rocks - can't say it was hot inside, but still didn't quite understand why he did so. What I liked the most - the way the guide spoke, no dry details in a monotonous voice, just vivid facts, so we were not bored at all. Unfortunately we were left with no time to explore the site freely by ourselves - had to go back as the program was nearly finished, but still it was very engaging, no regrets.

If you' want to introduce some variery to "boring" city trips go to Belogradchik)) truly, this place is an absolut must-see! I never thought I'd be impressed by some "stones" but I WAS! The only thing I regret it is just a half-of-a-day trip. The tour is anyway well-organised and the guides don't tell boring stuff. I loved that each our movement was sceduled and they even picked us up at the settled time although we rented a flat in some distant part of Sofia. There were 6 of us, so the price seemed reasonable. The girls liked that you don't need to have any special physical preparation - it is just a 2-hour relaxed walk when you enjoy the nature. I would really go back and stay there longer)

Comfy bus with aircon, decent and enjoyable drive, the driver was very professional, managed to go around some awful holes on the road! Awesome scenery on the way!! Nice and well-mannered guide with good English, had no trouble to understand her unlike other Bulgarians. In general worth the money.
